Hi everyone

wendyhappysmile Mon 10-Aug-09 08:52:19

Just deciding what to do this morning - brave the rain or visit my mum, perhaps, have abandoned children downstairs while I am upstairs on the PC blush I am not with it this morning.
Slept really badly last night, sleep is so important isn't it!! Early night tonight.
Just put some stuff on Freecycle, hope it goes so we get the garage looking better, had an hour in there last night to try and improve it - i.e. so one can actually walk in there!

Well see you all later ladies, hope all is well with you all

EHM Mon 10-Aug-09 09:28:46

Hi all - I have wine flu.

<<holds head in hands then types very quietly>>

was v well behaved at fancy dress party, but had friends for lunch yesterday. Can barely carry wine recycling. Not sure when they left, but I fell asleep/passed out fully clothed after playing on trampoline.

have busted dishwasher (overloaded whilst hammered) so a bit annoyed with self.

I am a poorly, poorly girl but it is self inflicted. You would think I'd know better at my age. I don't do it very often, but when I do, i am out of hand blush

grouchyoscar Mon 10-Aug-09 13:27:40

Hello FLYfriends

Having a lazy day today, well, making it lazy. I have overdone it as per usual and I will not be a wreak for the holiday.

Wendy I'm not with it either, must be a Monday Thing smile

Wen t to see the GP about this wretched itchy head, new lotion given this time, hope it does the trick. Also collected my usual stack of meds so I don't run short while away.

blush The eternal frightful magpie here. We're getting new neighbours and while I was putting the green bins out I noticed they'd chucked out a substantial chest of drawers. It seems fine if a touch scratched and bumped. I've dropped a note in saying what I've done blush We need to replace our set so it could be a handy stand in if they don't want it

wendyhappysmile Mon 10-Aug-09 15:24:05

good one grouchy that's why I use Freecycle, I hate chucking useful stuff out.
Been horrid to the children today, keep forgetting they're only little, feeling so tired. Went to my mum's and my Dad was there, he doesn't tolerate shouting and general noisy rough behaviour (i.e. little boys' behaviour!) so I am always on edge. I think it is where I get my non tolerance from sad
haven't managed to get out otherwise, and children a bit stir crazy, suppose there's still time!
See you later, wish DS would just leave DD alone, he is forever tormenting her, teasing and taunting her, rough with her ... being an only child myself I find it intolerable!

wendyhappysmile Mon 10-Aug-09 15:24:58

lol at Prof that's what I'm like when very drunk too - but I'm a terrible flirt and end up flirting with all my friend's husbands blush so I have to keep myself in check!

Starbear Mon 10-Aug-09 16:33:43

Yes Thank you scattyspice like Prof I have wine flu! Galen Hope the kids are on the mend.
Wash Dress and breakfast Done
Take sides of Ds's bed Done
Turned over the mattress with help of DH Done
Change bed linen Done and in wash. about to dry
Make Picnic Done Poorly planned as I didn't take a flask of coffee
Give a list of things to do to DH Done Sort of only gave him to tasks that don't count get HIS driving Licence sorted He still has a torn paper one and set up a Direct debit into his savings account so HE has the money to go to 7 nations Rugby thingy in New Zealand in 4 years time. (I'm not going to be blamed for stopping him going)
Take presents to nursery, pick nursery chq.done
Picnic Done and it was lovely
Try and get to the bank to put in chq *carried over*
DH making dinner

scattyspice Mon 10-Aug-09 18:02:23

I too am prone to wine flu blush.
galen shoe shopping was fairly painless (except for the bit where I had to hand over all my spare cash!). Although the shop assistant did say'they're very hyper' when I thought they were being quite good blush.
wendy the fighting drives me to distraction too angry, improves as they age though (turns into name calling instead hmm).

Need to tidy up now.

TeaMonster Mon 10-Aug-09 19:56:17

Sorry Ladies

I am too tired for personals, safe to say the mini's are in bed and I need a rest.

Mondays are harder work than normal, so I sympathise Wendy and Scatty We are taking mum to the hospital tomorrow - eek hope the boys behave.

I have done the ironing today thgoug!!

wendyhappysmile Mon 10-Aug-09 20:35:31

Night all
Shattered and fed up here but never mind! Perhaps I will succumb to the wine flu! grin

Starbear Mon 10-Aug-09 20:43:25

Off to drink tea that DH has made me. Tired but I have a happy Ds & DH did make dinner. Weeds have taken over my garden,I noticed, when I went slug hunting tonight. angry
I was a bad tempered oldest of 4 kids I don't know what I put my poor Mum through except for her reaching for the sherry bottle blush

dylsmum1998 Mon 10-Aug-09 21:27:47

evening all.
not much flying here we have been to the beach.
i did general routines before we left.
had a lovely day with family playing in the water and digging in the sand.

ds is really wearing me down at the mo, he is confrontational all the time, stroppy and so tiring!!

we are off pond dipping tomorrow so likely to get not a lot done again
